Los Feliz Diner, FRED 62, Celebrates 20th Anniversary With Appreciation Party


Just east of Hollywood is a Los Feliz staple known as Fred 62, a retro themed American diner that has been in service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for two decades now.  This neighborhood delight opened in 1997 specifically to cater to all Angelenos who wanted to eat great food at any time of the day.  The diner has coined what chef and co-founder, Fred Eric, likes to call “breakfast of stoners”.  Examples include the Dime Bag, fried Mac n Cheese Balls, Billion $ Pancakes, and classic American milkshakes.



Fred wanted to thank his patrons by throwing the Fred 62 XX Party where he will be serving complimentary bite-sized portions from the diner’s menu.  The celebration starts at 9pm and will go on through midnight on Saturday, June 17th, 2017.  For the official Facebook invite, click here, and be sure to keep up with Fred 62 through social media on Instagram and Facebook alike.

PaleyFest Presents: SCANDAL – Celebrating Episode 100!

PaleyFest Presents: SCANDAL – Celebrating Episode 100!

In celebration of SCANDAL’s 100th episode, SoCal Magazine would like to highlight our coverage of this phenomenal series from last month’s PaleyFest Los Angeles.  The entire cast of Shonda Rhimes’ hit show was in attendance and they all shared very unique stories from the set of Scandal along with their bonds off-screen and insight into what to expect from episode 100.

Bellamy Young and Kerry Washington both created emotional moments at Paley Fest when they spoke of the friendship that the cast mates have all built with one another.


“The 100th episode is insane, and you can think of it as the ‘What if…’ episode.  It’s an altered reality if things hadn’t gone they way they went.  It informs in a really unique way your understanding of all our characters.”  – Tony Goldwyn

Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn shared one of their most memorable moments on Scandal was when they touched the Constitution the same night that Obama was re-elected into office.










SCANDAL airs Thursdays at 9|8c on ABC.  Check out the gallery below.

Kerry Washington, “Olivia Pope”; Tony Goldwyn, “President Fitzgerald ‘Fitz’ Grant”; Scott Foley, “Jake Ballard”; Guillermo Diaz, “Huck”; Darby Stanchfield, “Abby Whelan”; Bellamy Young, “Mellie Grant”; Katie Lowes, “Quinn Perkins”; Joshua Malina, “David Rosen”;  Jeff Perry, “Cyrus Beene”; Cornelius Smith Jr., “Marcus Walker”; Joe Morton, “Rowan Pope”; and George Newborn, “Charlie” celebrated 100 episodes of the hit ABC series.  Good Morning America’s Jesse Palmer moderated the panel.

Cast and Creators of Fox’s Hit Animated Series, Bob’s Burgers, Share Upcoming Exclusives for Fans at PaleyFest L.A.

The second weekend of PaleyFest L.A. saw fans of the hit animated series, Bob’s Burgers, gather at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood to see exclusive clips and never before seen footage of upcoming episodes along with a live Q&A and table read with the cast and creators of the show.

There was no shortage of laughter in the theater that evening as most fans of Bob’s would come to expect from the comedic personalities that the fans have come to love.

Moderating the panel that evening was Bob’s Burgers creator, Loren Bouchard, who went on to explain that what makes the show so unique and captivating is that the core of the Belcher Family is optimism.  The cast collectively agreed that optimism is certainly an underlying theme between the Belchers as that’s what ultimately glues the family together no matter what obstacles are thrown at them.  “In terms of the show itself, a companion to optimism is acceptance and inclusiveness.  This show is supportive of anyone and everyone and so non-judgmental and that’s in large part because of you (the fans).” – Executive Producer, Jim Dauterive.

Fans were treated to a sneak peek of the upcoming Easter episode that sees Bob and Linda get competitive over who hides their Easter eggs better.  Things take a turn when the couple accidentally gets very drunk on a mysterious bottle of cheap wine.  Loren also revealed the news that Bob’s Burgers will finally release a complete soundtrack album this year with the most memorable musical numbers that were written and produced for the show.  The official release for the Bob’s Burgers musical album is May 12th, 2017.  Fans also learned that a new character will be introduced before this season is over.  The biggest reveal was right after the live table read when Loren confirmed that the first episode of the next season will be completely drawn by the fans.  Bob’s Burgers has begun promoting a contest through their social media to get fans excited to submit work and be selected to create a full episode.

Make sure to tune in to Bob’s Burgers Sunday nights on FOX.
